Friend of Education Award
Bob Bold was the first-ever recipient of the Parkland Education Association's Friend of Education Award which honors those whose leadership, acts, or support have significantly benefited public education, education employees and/or students. He was presented the award by Sandi Gackenbach, President of the Parkland Education Association (teacher's union). They are pictured above.
The Board gave the following reports:
Carol Facchiano reported that the Foundation grossed about $92,000 at this year's Gala. She noted that flowers are for sale that can be sent to teachers as an end-of-the-year gift at this link. 2018-19 Celebrate Innovation grants are in review and will be announced to all staff by the second week in June.
Everyone congratulated Bob Bold on winning the Friend of Education Award noted above. It was a great few weeks at Parkland as people noted the 15 Freddy Award nominations, a great Gala, a wonderful Prom and Post Prom Party, and the fact that this weekend is the 15th Annual Festival of the Arts. Also, our student rep to the Board Aryaman Khandelwa won a Presidential Scholar Award this week.
Mr. Sniscak recognized Carol Williams, a retiring Parkland Bus Driver, for her many years of service.
